Lleida capital city

Despite its many charms and attractions, Lleida (el Segrià – Spain) remains a relatively unknown city. Visitors interested in history and art are sure to find an interesting variety of buildings that show how different cultures have left their mark on the city. These include Roman and Medieval ruins and much more recent constructions, such as La PaeriaEl Palau de la Diputació. Other interesting structures include numerous Catalan Modernist (Art Nouveau) buildingsthe new Enric Granados Municipal Auditorium and the old cathedral (known locally as La Seu Vella). La Seu Vella is an exceptional Romanesque-Gothic style building that towers over the city from its position on top of the hill of the same name and the Templar Castle of Gardeny

There are also a number of interesting parks: La Mitjana an area of parkland running along the banks of the river Segre, which offers various leisure facilities, the romantic Camps Elisis park... The irrigated area around the city also offers pleasant rural settings that are simply ideal for bicycle rides. 

Those who like to have fun and enjoy a good time will not be disappointed in Lleida, as this is a lively city both during the day and at night and one that offers an interesting range of traditional festivals and celebrations. Important local events include: Les Festes de Maig,or May festival; the Moros i Cristians, festival, in which battles between Moors and Christians are re-enacted; the Fira de Titelles, a puppet festival; the one and only Aplec del Caragol, which attracts thousands of local people and visitors who share an interest in eating snails and partying; and the Festes de Tardor, or Autumn Festival, which has a more cultural focus. Neither should we forget a number of other important festivities, including Carnival, Easter and La Processió dels Fanalets de Sant Jaume (a lantern procession).

It is impossible to complete this summary without mentioning the Monumental Route, the many museums in the city: the Jaume Morera Art Museum and Diocese and Local District Museum of Lleida. The amount of drama and cinema on offer of the city is quite remarkable, with the Mostra de Cinema Llatinoamericà de Lleida, which is usually held in January, Lleida puppet Theatre Festival, Conference and Congress of Lleida - La Llotja providing a good example of what is available. 

On the subject of reasons for visiting Lleida (el Segrià – Spain), visitors are also reminded of the city’s many interesting and attractive shops.

  • La The city of Lleida (El Segrià) now has a new multi-functional building, La Llotja de Lleida, which will provide services to the city and be a key reference for tourism associated with meetings, congresses and business.

    This carefully designed, emblematic building is a highly functional and aesthetically pleasing example of how urban planning can establish a continuous and harmonious dialogue with the city through forms, colours, vantage points and glass façades.

    The outer part of the building is a visible testimony to the unique nature and identity of this territory. It has already another piece of this urban framework, assuming part of its character and contributing to its users.

    The inner part of this space, which is welcoming and utilitarian, has been designed for congress-related and business activity, but also for use by local citizens. It offers its guests magnificent panoramic views over the city, the river Segre and the Seu Vella (Old Cathedral).

    The main spaces at La Llotja de Lleida are:

    • The main auditorium, with a capacity for 1,000 people, is a space designed to host a wide range of activities: congresses, conventions, theatre, opera, ...
    • Two congress halls with respective capacities for 400 and 200 people.
    • The business centre provides complete facilities for event organizers, including office space to suit different needs and meeting halls ranging in size from 20m2 to 80 m2.
    • Two multi-functional halls: one space in which the predominant colour is gold and which has many potential uses, and a second with cafeteria and restaurant services.
    • The lobby, with an area of 887m2, is connected to the majority of public spaces in the building and is the meeting point for congress delegates and spectators.
    • The roof area serves a double function, as a vantage point and garden, with the latter also acting as a thermal control mechanism.
    • The foyer is in the form of a ring which runs round and embraces all of the halls. It is 14 metres wide and offers a diaphanous, complementary space for the multi-functional halls. It is apt for hosting stands, cocktail parties and meals and offers views of the surrounding scenery through its extensive glass surface.
